Municipal Equipment Overview
Municipal services are those essential services provided by local governments to help provide for the basic needs of their citizens and also make their cities and towns better places in which to live and work. These basic services can include water, sewer, sanitation, street maintenance, transportation, police, fire, utilities, and more. Providing services like these requires the use of many types of specialized equipment, including electronics, motors, mechanical equipment, hydraulic equipment, pneumatic equipment, and others.
Here are just a few examples of the types of equipment and connected internal components we can repair, service, and refurbish for municipalities and municipal departments:
- Printed Circuit Board (PCB)
- Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
- Power Supply
- Hydraulic Pump
- Hydraulic Motor
- Pump Motor
- Vacuum Pump
- Crane Motor
- Hoist Motor
- Control Panel
- Operator Interface
- Regulator Controls
- Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
- Servo Drive
- Servo Motor
- Communication Systems
What Are Some Common Issues with Municipal Equipment?
With regular usage, any type of electronic, mechanical, motor, or hydraulic equipment can and will eventually require service, and this is certainly true for all manner of municipal equipment. And whenever there’s a problem with your municipal equipment, your ability to effectively serve the needs of your taxpayers and citizens can quickly become compromised. Here are some common issues we see in our work with municipal equipment at AES:
Improper equipment operation
One of the most common causes for municipal equipment failure is operator error. Most municipal workers don’t set out to break a machine, but sometimes accidents happen. These could come due to a lack of operator training, an operator misjudgment, or just an inadvertent faulty handling of the equipment. One collision or one equipment may be all it takes to knock a component or some sensitive internal circuitry out of whack.
Contamination from exposure to water and fluids is a common threat for many types of municipal equipment, especially those which operate out in the elements. And if rust ever gains a foothold in your metal components, that will serve to speed the oxidation and breakdown of lubricants as well. If you discover any corrosion or rust issues with your municipal equipment, then it’s time to have it professionally serviced and refurbished.
Many kinds of municipal equipment involve the transportation of materials from point A to point B. But if there’s bearing failure with any moving parts, then your equipment may essentially stop moving too. Premature bearing failure is often a result of the loss of bearing lubricants, and can also be accelerated by the intrusion of various contaminants. Misaligned bearings are also likely to fail prematurely.
Many cycles of temperature extremes, moisture extremes, and just regular equipment usage can eventually lead to structural fatigue. For example, metal parts are typically flexible and resilient, but structural fatigue can lead the metal to become brittle, and even fracture or break. One of the best preventative measures you can take is to keep all machinery and parts well-lubricated. Even so, municipal equipment structural fatigue can still occur over time.
And speaking of proper lubrication, it’s important to follow a prescribed schedule of maintenance for municipal equipment. This should include regular inspection, cleaning, lubrication, and testing of your equipment. Inadequate or improper maintenance – or a simple lack of maintenance, period – can very easily lead to premature equipment failures.

After you approve the repair quote, we’ll get it right on our technician team’s schedule so we can get right to work! We’ll troubleshoot your municipal equipment – along with any sensitive electronic components or circuitry – and will also put it under full-load testing.

At AES, we work with all sorts of equipment and machinery, and we understand that your equipment will work better and also last longer if it’s properly cleaned and maintained. We’ll give it a thorough cleaning inside and out, and we’ll also remove any accumulated internal moisture or contaminants.
Quality Assurance Measures & Return Shipping
Before we finally sign off on your municipal equipment, we’ll conduct a final round of quality assurance measures. Once those are completed to suit our high expectations, we’ll carefully prepare your equipment for return shipping, including using proper packaging to keep your items in good shape during transit.

The Best Repair Warranty Around!
And here’s one more thing you should keep in mind about AES. Other repair providers will clamor for your business, but many of those some providers don’t back their repair work with any kind of significant warranty. Sadly, some will only guarantee their workmanship for a mere 3 months! That’s not much of a warranty. At AES, we believe in the exceptional quality of the services we provide, and we stand behind our work by providing a full 24-Month Limited Warranty. If a problem arises during the stated warranty period, which is deemed to be related to our workmanship, we’ll provide a follow-up repair service for you at NO cost! Earning your trust by standing behind what we do is something we take very seriously at AES.
